It becomes pretty boring to stay at home all day long when you are sick. Since there are only two enemies to human happiness- pain and boredom. Staying in bed all day, the disgusting taste of medicines, not being allowed to eat junk food or have a soft drink are a part of your days when you are ill.

- Take a nap
Trying to sleep is the easiest way to pass some time. It is the best possible way to help you mend faster. Sleeping can give rest to your mind and body and help you feel better. So make a pillow and blanket fort and sleep in it because there is no better way to forget you’re sick than to enter dreamland, and pretend you’re not, at least for a little while.
- Watch your favorite movies and TV series
You can watch your favorite movies which you never get bored of. Or kind of light hearten comedy movies as laughter is the best way to cure your sickness. You can also watch your favorite TV series which you might have missed because of work or study.
- Read a good book
Pull out an interesting book from your shelves and start to read it. Or try to read a story book or comics.
